If you're looking for a great quality education for your child along with the availability of music, art, sports, foreign languages, clubs, before/after school care, then Stanley Clark School should be #1 on your list. The teachers, staff and the facilities are great. Small class sizes, friendly staff, caring teachers, great learning experience for years to come. Stanley Clark School is a great foundation academically/athletically for any child.

When jobs at Notre Dame brought us to South Bend a few years ago, we found a preschool place at Stanley Clark for our son, who felt at home there right away. He's really shy, so Clark, where all the students (and staff, too) make an effort to know and use everyone's name, has been a great fit from day one. The academic programs, support, and attention to each child's talents and challenges, are brilliant, and the teachers, both "homeroom" teachers, but also the art, music, movement, PE, and language teachers, all really engage with the kids (and I love that from preschool the kids have specialist art teachers, language teachers, music teachers, etc., as the level of education is really high). We've been at schools where the teachers are overstretched and not given the time, resources or support to think about the best class activities and lesson plans, or bigger projects that respond to the children's talents and new interests, but at Clark the teachers are energized and have time to be engaged with each student, and this pays off. I've also been really pleased that without pushing a specific religious agenda, at Clark, both students and teachers, model and teach integrity, respect, and what it is to be a good human being. It's a great community and an amazing school. So pleased with it.

We are so happy with Stanley Clark. It has made our move back to the midwest so much easier to know that our children are in a great place. Small class sizes, state of the art facilities, and a phenomenal teaching staff that is both steeped in the fundamentals and adaptable depending upon the kid/situation. Growth mindset is everywhere at SCS and the approach spans all of the many offerings, including: art, music, coding, athletics, and much more.
